Hudson River to Patuxant River

Going up the Delaware Bay to the Canal is about 50 miles, a daylight run as long as you use the current. Be prepared for an ugly piece of brown water with flat scrubby shoreline in the distance. A...

captain''''s license

Yes, time aboard your own boat counts. If you''ve been sailing for a long time, those days and weekends accumulated will add up.

My mast height is also 63'' and I''ve had no problems with any fixed Ditch bridges behind Hatteras or elsewhere other than one bridge in Florida (can''t remember where, mid-coast I think).

Bermuda in July

Thinking about a trip from Norfolk to Bermuda and back in July. Assuming a clear weather window, it should take 5-6 days. Does anyone think mid-July is too risky a time?

Yard / marina in Chesapeake Bay

A bit north of Norfolk/Hampton Roads is a top (though expensive) yard - Zimmerman''s located on Mobjack Bay. If you want a good marina, York River Yacht Haven is a good place to sail out of.
